The M48 Mauser is a Yugoslavian military surplus rifle. They were built from 1950 to 1965 and most M48s were put into government storage shortly after they were manufactured.
These rifles are shipped coated in the protective grease "cosmoline" which needs to be cleaned out before the rifle is fired.
These rifles are not new, they are military surplus. They do not include an owner's manual nor a warrantee card. The manufacturer, the government of Yugoslavia, disintegrated in a series of wars starting in 1991. These rifles are sold "As is."
To remove cosmoline grease from a military surplus rifle we suggest an aerosol solvent such as Gun Scrubber or bake cleaner and a CLP such as Break Free or G96, and a good bit of "elbow grease"
